Just hitting their stride
The “drink history” is entertaining and informative. I like all the 70s sitcom talk. I want more impressions. I think I'd prefer more strictness on the topics and less random grabbing at them to fill time. I do think they need a guest to keep them from rambling excessively, but I enjoy it and think they're starting to hit their stride.
Update 2/22/16: The Star Wars episode and the Fryda Wolff episodes are my favorites so far. I mentioned having a guest to help narrow the focus, and the Fryda episode nailed it. She was very entertaining and I appreciated the look into the voiceover world.
Makes my taste in alcohal seem dull (i like vodka). Really great podcast. Both Jared and Chris are fun to listen to. Listening to the history of the drinks in the episodes is great, (never heard of Shrubs till this podcast.) as well as the pop culture discussions (Biggs did die on screen btw.) I will continue to listen to this podcast, as well as recommend it to friends.
Humorous, conversational and full of interesting facts and trivia
The quick wittedness and depth of knowledge from these guys is thoroughly entertaining and enjoyable.
